Vegan Beginnings | True Confessions of an Uneager Vegan

Vegan Beginnings | True Confessions of an Uneager Vegan

Call me the Uneager Vegan. This morning I sat down to a breakfast that was nearly unrecognizable…well, for a breakfast. It looked more like a snack than a meal. I ate half an orange bell pepper and five thick slices of zucchini. I dipped my […]

Aren’t Vegans Crazy?

Aren’t Vegans Crazy?

Having cancer makes you want to learn about cancer suddenly. This sudden need to research opens up a huge can of worms! There is so much information, or half-information, out there. What causes cancer? Genetics? Environment? Diet? Other lifestyle choices? What cures cancer? Food? Drugs? […]

Hairs

Hairs

When I sat across from my Oncologist back in March, do you know what she told me that upset me the most? “Oh yeah. You’ll lose your hair. All of it.” I freaked. A large part of my physical identity has been my red hair. […]

Am I Faking It?

Am I Faking It?

(I wrote this a month ago. A MONTH AGO. What happened to the last 4 weeks?) This is not clickbait, I swear! I really had this thought the first round of chemo. I had my first chemo treatment on April 24th. It was different than […]

Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Me

Are We There Yet? #5 Phoenix, AZ

We stayed in Phoenix for 5 days. It was 115 degrees outside each day, and that was a heat I’ve never experienced! (Brig said it was just a little cooler than Afghanistan 🤣). It was difficult for us to find things to do in Phoenix […]

Are We There Yet? #4 Sedona, AZ

Are We There Yet? #4 Sedona, AZ

Brig, Liv and I decided to stop for a hike in Sedona, AZ on our way to Phoenix. It was hot, but it was so pretty! What an amazing spot- it is unlike the rest of AZ- red rock and sandstone. So interesting!  

My Waco Paradigm Shift

My Waco Paradigm Shift

I had a rough day today. I worked in the afternoon rather than the morning. I didn’t sleep well because my baby didn’t sleep well. And, I missed out on a day’s worth of sightseeing in a town I may never visit again. Waco, TX, […]

Cupcakes and the Fall

Cupcakes and the Fall

We just arrived in Waco, TX. I have been thrilled to get here! Though I enjoyed all of the variety of Dallas, I was excited to get down to the small town feel. I missed that! I feel like these last few days have been […]
